In May 2000, a Hispanic boy aged 4 years residing in Fresno County was identified during routine CHDP

Because well-child visits and immunizations could be received by children either under the CHDP program or under the managed care programs, we combined data from different sources to obtain a complete utilization history for the study children.
In this manner, we avoided any duplication of service records that may have occurred in the CHDP and Tape-to-Tape files and the MMC pseudo-claims files.
